Company Posts Non-GAAP Operating Profit, Meets Guidance, and Reports Continuing Progress on Customers, New 5G and Industrial IoT Products, and Cloud Telematics Markets

SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 8, 2018-- Inseego Corp. (Nasdaq: INSG) (the “Company”), an industry leader in solutions for intelligent mobile enterprises, today reported the following results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2018. The Company reports first quarter revenues of $46.7 million, GAAP net loss of $8.1 million, or a net loss of $0.13 per share, adjusted EBITDA of $3.3 million and non-GAAP net loss of $0.03 per share. Non-GAAP operating expenses have been reduced by over 30% as compared to the first quarter of 2017. Cash and cash equivalents at the end of the period, including restricted cash, was $16.2 million.

“I’m pleased to report that Inseego is off to a great start in 2018. We reported Q1 in line with our guidance and we continue to make solid progress in the transformation of Inseego 2.0,” said Dan Mondor, CEO of Inseego. “In the first few months of this year we saw momentum in both IoT & Mobile Solutions and Enterprise SaaS Solutions on numerous fronts with new wins, solid year over year growth in the Ctrack business, specifically in recurring software revenue, and continued momentum in the Aviation vertical. We have embarked on aggressive product development efforts for enterprise IoT and multiple new 5G products to accelerate growth in 2019.”

Recent Business Highlights

- Continued progress on adjusted EBITDA, growing 17% quarter over quarter, and an improvement of $6.5 million year over year.

- Ctrack resumed year over year revenue growth in the quarter led by strong recurring software revenue growth and the Aviation vertical.

- Ctrack SMB and large fleet core market pipelines grew 15% to 25% across all geographies.

- Began shipments of 4G VoLTE HD quality wireless home phone solution.

- Signed Sprint to five-year contract on DMS platform.

“We met our guidance as the Ctrack business outperformance offset continued softness in legacy MiFi business,” said Steve Smith, CFO of Inseego. “Looking forward we are bullish on the business as our customers are coming to us with near-term opportunities. We are making targeted investments in new 5G, Industrial IoT and cloud solutions while remaining focused on continued G&A cost reductions.

Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

Some of the information presented in this news release may constitute forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. In this context, forward-looking statements often address expected future business and financial performance and often contain words such as “may,” “estimate,” “anticipate,” “believe,” “expect,” “intend,” “plan,” “project,” “will” and similar words and phrases indicating future results. The information presented in this news release related to our outlook for the second quarter ending June 30, 2018 and our future business outlook, the future demand for our products, as well as other statements that are not purely statements of historical fact, are forward-looking in nature. These forward-looking statements are made on the basis of management's current expectations, assumptions, estimates and projections and are subject to significant risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those anticipated in such forward-looking statements. We therefore cannot guarantee future results, performance or achievements. Actual results could differ materially from our expectations.

Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from the Company’s expectations include: (1) the future demand for wireless broadband access to data and fleet management software and services; (2) the growth of wireless wide-area networking and fleet management software and services; (3) customer and end-user acceptance of the Company’s current product and service offerings and market demand for the Company’s anticipated new product and service offerings; (4) increased competition and pricing pressure from participants in the markets in which the Company is engaged; (5) dependence on third-party manufacturers and key component suppliers worldwide; (6) unexpected liabilities or expenses; (7) the Company’s ability to introduce new products and services in a timely manner, including the ability to develop and launch 5G technology at the speed and functionality required by our customers; (8) litigation, regulatory and IP developments related to our products or components of our products; (9) dependence on a small number of customers for a significant portion of the Company’s revenues; and (10) the Company’s plans and expectations relating to acquisitions, divestitures, strategic relationships, international expansion, software and hardware developments, personnel matters and cost containment initiatives, including restructuring activities and the timing of their implementation.

These factors, as well as other factors set forth as risk factors or otherwise described in the reports filed by the Company with the SEC (available at www.sec.gov), could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed in the Company’s forward-looking statements. The Company assumes no obligation to update publicly any forward-looking statements for any reason, even if new information becomes available or other events occur in the future, except as otherwise required pursuant to applicable law and our on-going reporting obligations under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Inseego Corp. has provided financial information in this news release that has not been prepared in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP operating expenses, adjusted EBITDA, net loss and net loss per share exclude restructuring charges, net of recoveries, share-based compensation expense, amortization of discount and issuance costs related to the Company’s convertible senior notes and term loan and an impairment charge related to certain product lines the Company abandoned, net of recoveries. Adjusted EBITDA also excludes interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (unrelated to acquisitions, the convertible senior notes and the term loans) and foreign currency transaction gains and losses.

Non-GAAP operating expenses, adjusted EBITDA, net loss and net loss per share are supplemental measures of our performance that are not required by, or presented in accordance with, GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as an analytical tool and are not intended to be used in isolation or as a substitute for operating expenses, net loss, net loss per share or any other performance measure determined in accordance with GAAP. We present non-GAAP operating expenses, adjusted EBITDA, net loss and net loss per share because we consider each to be an important supplemental measure of our performance.

Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures to make operational decisions, evaluate the Company’s performance, prepare forecasts and determine compensation. Further, management believes that both management and investors benefit from referring to these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing the Company’s performance when planning, forecasting and analyzing future periods. Share-based compensation expenses are expected to vary depending on the number of new incentive award grants issued to both current and new employees, the number of such grants forfeited by former employees, and changes in the Company’s stock price, stock market volatility, expected option term and risk-free interest rates, all of which are difficult to estimate. In calculating non-GAAP operating expenses, adjusted EBITDA, net loss and net loss per share, management excludes certain non-cash and one-time items in order to facilitate comparability of the Company’s operating performance on a period-to-period basis because such expenses are not, in management’s view, related to the Company’s ongoing operating performance. Management uses this view of the Company’s operating performance for purposes of comparison with its business plan and individual operating budgets and in the allocation of resources.

The Company further believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors in providing greater transparency to the information used by management in its operational decision-making. The Company believes that the use of non-GAAP operating expenses, adjusted EBITDA, net loss and net loss per share also facilitates a comparison of our underlying operating performance with that of other companies in our industry, which use similar non-GAAP financial measures to supplement their GAAP results.

In the future, the Company expects to continue to incur expenses similar to the non-GAAP adjustments described above, and exclusion of these items in the presentation of our non-GAAP financial measures should not be construed as an inference that these costs are unusual, infrequent or non-recurring. Investors and potential investors are cautioned that there are material limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP financial measures as an analytical tool. The limitations of relying on non-GAAP financial measures include, but are not limited to, the fact that other companies, including other companies in our industry, may calculate non-GAAP financial measures differently than we do, limiting their usefulness as a comparative tool.

Investors and potential investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of our non-GAAP financial measures contained within this news release with our GAAP financial results.
